    Actually I think the Akasa AK-965x3 wins basically the same but a few quid less (aprox £11)

    Re: Installing a Core2Duo CPU

    it's really not hard.

    1-Remove protective cap from socket
    2-release tension bar and lift up the socket lid
    3-remove protective cover from cpu and drop it in (it can only go in one way because of the shape)
    4-lower lid and refasten tension bar (it might make a crunch sound, don't panic)
    5-make sure the push pins are in the locking position (slots on the tops pointing outwards) lower cooler onto cpu makeing sure all 4 pins align with the motherboard holes.
    6-push down on pins untill they "click" work oppisit corners (not one side the the other)
    (if you look at the pins on the back of the motherboard you can tell if they are fully locked as the end of the black central pin will be level with the two outter halves of the white pin)
    7-plug in fan

    Job done. Only thing I'm not sure on is removeing the ak-965 fan or not before fitting, you'll probably be able to do it ether way (same as the ACf7p) but it'll be eaiser to remove the fan to give you more space to work with.
    Only other thing to say is that tower coolers are generally best fitted with the fan towards the front so it pushes air through the cooler to the back of the case (does depend on case layout though) also if you have a case with an air duct from the side pannel then you'll need to remove that.
